He was very nice to me at our first meeting. He did the scraping to make sure the skin cancer cells were gone and he got it all the first time. He did the surgery on my scalp with ease and it came out perfect. I had the stitches taken out two days ago, it looks great, even tiny hairs are growing near the wound. I will have a good cover in no time. I am recommending Dr Halpern to anyone who needs the Mohs surgery.

Dr. Halpern was respectful, informative, caring, professional and warm. He took the time to answer questions. His procedure was careful; he explained every step of the way. He called me that night to check on me. He is an excellent doctor, instilling confidence in this patient that I was in the right hands--safe and excellent.

This was my second MOHS surgery performed by Dr Halpern. I had previously experienced other MOHS surgeries when I lived in Florida so I had a basis for comparison. Dr Halpern is very kind and gives a complete explanation of the procedure and always allows time to answer all of my questions thoroughly. He is a great listener and is very caring. Dr Halpern called me personally the evening of both procedures to check on my well being. His assistant Margie is top notch. Highly recommend Windsor Dermatology for MOHS skin cancer surgery.

I have very mixed feelings about this practice. Some of the back office staff are very condescending and disrespectful to patients. They are abrupt when questioned and resistant to shared decision making with patients.

Dr. Halpern is an outstanding Mohs surgeon. He removed a squamous cell cancer from a very tricky location on my right ear and grafted a section of skin from in front of the ear over the surgical site. Great outcome, minimal scarring, fantastic office staff and a very personable physician. Well worth the extra travel time to reach his office from my home.
